Adding a new wireless router from Linksys at an old Linksys router system


I'll install a new standalone DVR to a home video surveillance system.  I would like to be able to access it with my current PC so I would like to add a Linksys wireless router.

I'm currently 1 Linksys Wireless - G Broadband Router with speed Booster model WRT54GS-BP and 2 models WMP54GS from PC that have PCI adapters Wireless-G with speed Boosters (802.11 g).  I had these installed since 2006 and although they are no longer supported I really want to have to upgrade because they work very well.

My questions are:

If I add a new Linksys router to my new DVR will be able to communicate with my older Linksys router and adapters?   If Yes, what would be the best new router Linksys type should I buy?

Thanks in advance for any help and advice.

Hi Dan,.

Please excuse the delay of time here, but I had a hard time to post a reply.  I added Ethernet Wireless-N - WET610N bridge.  When I installed the software, I kept getting error 102 - an error occurred communicating with your device.  I called Linksys for help and the tech had me make a few changes to the router  I was able to install the Web Service to display the camera on both of our PC.  So the addition of the WET610N allowed us to access the DVR wireless!

Thanks a lot for all your help!

  • Working Group stopped after the installation of the new wireless router

    My working group stopped working after the installation of the new wireless router.  Router was switched were to move from DSL to fiber optic.

    I have a very simple home with two laptops working group, the two are connected with a wireless router.  A PC is running XP with the updates and service packs; the other PC is Windows 7 Home premium.  This working group was running without problems for a few years.  The Working Group has been used to share files between two laptops.  Internet access was through the DSL wireless router and print was with a wireless printer, without going through the working group.

    I had my DSL set out to free fiber optic last week, which meant that a new wireless router has been installed by my local phone company.  Internet works fine; wireless printer works.  The working group no longer works.  When I try to connect from XP to Win7 and I click on mode workgroup computers, I get this message:

    WorkGroupName is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

    The network path was not found.

    I tried to create a new working group, the new name for the same workgroup on both machines, but this did not help.  Working groups are supposed to be simple; This seems to be a problem on the new router - telco tech support says that nothing is stuck on the router. I don't believe them.

    What version of XP you use (Home or Pro)?

    Can you access the Win 7 a XP computer?

    You have identical accounts, passwords on both computers?

    If all that was done was to change routers without making any changes on the computers, the most likely cause of the problem is a third party (other than Windows) firewall on at least one of the computers.  Being by default, a router automatically assigns IP addresses to computers on your local network.  Different brands of routers, but use different address ranges.  For example, Cisco/Linksys routers typically use the 192.168 form addresses. 1.1 with 192.168. 1. 254, while the D-Link routers typically use 192.168.1 to 254.  A firewall configured to allow only the first IP range blocks communication to the scope of the latter.

    So... What is the name and version of your anti-virus program?
    What other security software is installed?

    On every laptop computer, open a command prompt window
    for XP: start > run > cmd > OK
    for Win 7: type cmd.exe in the search box and press enter
    In the black command prompt window, type the following command and press enter

    Please provide the values for the following for the adapter wireless of each computer
    IP (XP)
    IPv4 address (Win 7)

  • Time for a new wireless router? Security no longer works

    My router has acted lately.  I did the Web page and two manual reset / original restore.

    I works very well without any security.  When I reset the password name & network security everything seemed normal.

    It now displays the new network name but should not be the new password, it appears immediately as "invalid security phrase.

    On the router to the wireless security, I have selected WEP, 128-bit, 26 hexagonal etc., entered my password, press on generate and then 'save settings '.

    Everything seems fine, but it does not accept the new password.  Again, this works fine without warranty, but I can't run like that.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you!

  • Do I need a new wireless router?

    Has been said by Virgin that although their modem accept 20 MB, my wireless router (a 4 years old Lynksis BEFW1154) won't let me get the faster speeds. As a "silver surfer", I could argue the point with their advisor, because honestly I don't know what he was doing on. What I know, is that I pay a monthly display for flow rate of 20 MB, and having control of internet speed, all I get is 3.3 MB download and 0.9 MB Upload. Do I need a new wireless router? Any constructive suggestions would be much appreciated

    Thanks a lot for your answer. I'll go to local store and explain my problem and tell them your suggestion. I'm sure that they will be able to help. Very much appreciate your help.

  • Computer Vista laptop cannot connect to new wireless router

    I had the laptop for about a year and a half, and he has a history of being pretty skittish about the wireless connection.  Often he simply refuses to do so.  During vacation last year, for example, the other three laptops connected family easily to wi - fi hotel, but mine has refused to.  There are a lot of other moments when the laptop could not connect, but I was able to connect to two most important places - home and work - without much trouble, and so I haven't looked too hard to solve the problems of connection up to now.

    This week, I replaced the router in my original configuration.  The old Netgear router kept giving up the connection between her and my ISP.  The new Linksys router looks rock solid in this regard.  I have a desktop running XP computer that is wired to the new router Linksys, and he sees the internet very well.  My laptop Vista unable to connect (wireless), however.  He sees the network with a lot of intensity of the signal, and it tries to connect.  I get a message saying that the connection takes longer than usual, and then another message saying 'connected.'  However, I do not have internet access, and I see other devices (just the XP desktop, really) on the network.  The Network and Sharing Center shows my laptop connected to the 'unidentified network', and then there is a red X between this network and the Internet (represented by a grey globe).  Laptop computer signals its 'access' as "local only".

    From the desktop, I can access the internet, so the router is connected to the points upstream.  From the desktop, I can also access the router configuration pages, and I see that it does not list the laptop as a dhcp client, even if the laptop thinks that it is connected.

    ipconfig on laptop computer displays a wacky IPv4 address: and I guess that the laptop does not get an address passed to the router.  I think that there should be a 192.168. *. * address if it worked properly.

    Now, I was pretty sure my laptop's wireless adapter to work properly.  It always connects to the old router and it always connects to the work.  But to be sure and really test the new router, I went out and bought another USB adapter wireless.  When I plug it into the computer to Office XP, the Office connects to the router and can see the internet (even with the connection cable is disconnected).  So the new router and the new wireless USB adapater properly.  When I plug the USB wireless adapter into the laptop, the laptop still can't connect and still not get a good ip address assigned by the router.

    I've been at this for a few days now, and I could really use some help.  I read a few items in the Microsoft forums that was supposed to fix the problem.  One of them told me to try to start a program called DHCP in the Administrative Tools folder.  I do not have this program on my computer.  Another told me manually change my registry (ouch!) and add a new DWORD value, and set its value to 1.  I did, but it did not fix the problem.

    I would be very grateful for any help.


    Alright.  I am home to work and back again.  I have read several posts with people reporting problems similar to mine, so I guess I'm not alone in this.  In a thread, the experts proposed to start in Mode safe mode with networking.  So I gave that a shot.  I still couldn't really connect - just this 'local only' without an assigned IP address.

    One thing I did notice, is that my laptop brand and its wireless adapter seem to get a special mention in most positions.  I have a HP Compaq Presario CQ50 Notebook PC running Vista Home Premium SP2, 32-bit version (even if the processor is 64-bit).  The wireless adapter is an Atheros AR5007.  Several other people with this card have reported problems.  Maybe it's the cause?

    I look into updating the driver for the card, even if yesterday's test with the separate USB wireless adapter showed that the problem could not just be limited to the Atheros card.  To search for a driver update, I connect my laptop to the router with an ethernet cable.  It's nice to see the web on your laptop.  No update driver does.

    For fun, I try to establish a wireless connection with the router, while the wired connection is still in place.  Looks like maybe it worked?  I say a little prayer and unplug the ethernet cable...

    It's a miracle!  I have a wireless connection to the router and beyond, to the internet.  Huzzah!

    The network has a real name, too, instead of just 'unidentified network '.  I want to change the network type from the public to the private, which I was unable to do while he was still 'unidentified '.

    Can I terminate the connection so that I can see what happens when I try to reconnect.

    Another miracle!  It connects to and still see the internet.  Callooh!  Colay!

    Next test: see what happens after a reboot... (please, please, please)...

    Ch-ching!  It works again!

    Final (?) test: reinstall the McAffee internet security suite and restart.

    And it still works.

    Here's a recap of what I found:
    1. laptop could not connect wireless router again, despite dozens of attempts in which I get every available straw
    2. laptop computer could see the internet when connected to the router
    3. laptop could connect wirelessly to the router while the wired connection is in place
    4. Once this first wireless, laptop computer was able to connect to the router even when the wired connection has been removed and the computer restarts

    I would describe my discovery above as a work-around rather than as a solution, however.  It does not always help me stay connected the next time I'm on vacation, for example.  But perhaps the information I provided can help experts to diagnose the real problem a little.

    I look forward to hear something back.


  • Buying a new wireless router that connects to the internet by cable with some hardware ports.

    I bought a WRK54G in 2004.  In the last six months, I bought two notebooks for my daughters.  My family has added four Android smartphones in the 45 days.  Our Wired internet connection come off the router wireless on our office is very frequently abandon its connection.  Seems one of the smartphones is ripped from the INVESTIGATION period.  Does make sense?

    Pulling IP address - you mean there is a conflict between the IP address of the PC cable to a wireless device?

    If this is the case, I suggest that you apply static I have. Here is a guide I've seen back on how to do: assign a static on a wired computer IP address

  • Need help to connect the old Windows XP to new wireless router, please

    I have an old desktop running Windows XP Edition family 2002 version, which has been connected to a Netgear WG311 802.11 wireless router g.

Thank you very much for your help.

    The problem is probably that the Linksys E1200 is a wireless-N Router and your former Office no doubt has a wireless adapter that is only capable of wireless-G (or perhaps Wireless G and B).

    Are adapters wireless in your other computers wireless - n?  If so, it perhaps is the reason why they could not connect to your old G of Netgear wireless router.

    You can get a new wireless-N for the office adapter or configure the E1200 wireless g available.

    Hi Jack

    I am well connected via UPC which was formerly NTL, and I watched Hostmaster Chello Broadband and it seems to be part of the UPC also. I don't know if I have a network manager.

    However, my problems seem to have been resolved, I deleted the files and programs that were downloaded from the internet, including protection against viruses and a program called utorrent and have replace my virus protection with microsoft security databases. Ran malware bytes, I know not if I have to run this next to most of the security.

    I hope that my problems have been fixed, but I'll be back if they occur again. Thanks for your time and your help.
